Money Doesn’t Talk, It Kills

Money Doesn’t Talk, It Kills is a fast-paced crime thriller about money and the twin emotions, fear and greed, that most often surround it.

Mark Slater is a university professor turned stock-market analyst – 46 years old, happily married, with two kids in college. From a fellow analyst, he learns of an upcoming takeover that would allow him to make a lot of money. But to cash in he would need to break the law. And that is something Mark is sure he’d never do.

Events, however, work against him, and when Mark meets a college friend he hasn’t seen in years, he is persuaded to give in to temptation and commit the crime of insider trading.

Too late, he realizes he has made a terrible mistake. He has put at risk everything he holds dear – his job, his family, his freedom, and his self-respect. Mark just wants his old life back. But his college friend has other ideas, which lead Mark into a violent and criminal world from which there seems no way out.
